Force Development

By Drew Lamon Russell

Adventure / Scifi

Scene I

This is a reimagining of the scene where Anakin and Obi-Wan guard Padme from being assassinated. And also a deeper look into Anakin's development with the force, something I thought would be exciting to see.

"I don't sleep well anymore"

"Because of your mother?"

Anakin looks at the ground and gives off a sad impression

"I don't know why I keep dreaming of her, I haven't seen her since I was very little"

"Dreams pass in time"

"I much rather dream of Padme. Just being around her again is... intoxicating"

"Be mindful of your thoughts Anakin, they betray you if you let them consume you"

Anakin let out a sigh, as Obi-Wan continues with his lecture.

"You swore an oath to the Jedi order... an oath not so easily broken. And don't forget that she's a politician, they are not to be trusted"

Anakin swings around to face Obi-Wan in the face.

"She's not like other politician's Master, she doesn't truly care for political champagnes, or... other causes to fund a democracy"

Anakin retorts with a smile on his face.

Obi-Wan, leans in with suspicious eyes. 

"And what does she care about Anakin?"

Anakin's smiled faded

"Anakin... I've been where you've been and it's not easy, I know..."

Obi-Wan pauses and thinks about his past for a second.

"But the things we sware when we take the oath of being a Jedi are all but half made promises"

Anakin's anger raised

"I know ok, just leave me alone."

Anakin stomps back inside the building

"You can't stop lecturing me for one night, even when we are back home on Coruscant"

"Anakin!"

Obi-Wan says in a angry yet calm voice, so not to disturb Padme.

"Forget it. You don't care about what I have to say"

Anakin says with his back to Obi-Wan.

(Cut to the Assassination droid realising bugs inside Padme's bedroom) 

(Cut back to Obi-Wan standing with his arms crossed to a frustrated Anakin, whos staring out one of the windows)

(John William's Tales of a Jedi Knight/Learn About the Force score plays in)

"Anakin you are a padawan, you have yet to understand the ways the force can guide you"

"There just microscopic blood cells not future predictors"

"Insolent as always"

Anakin then cringed and then angrily shouted

"Qui Gon was a true master! And all you are is a padawan yourself"

Obi-wan is taken back from these harsh words but holds a sturdy look that only a master would

Anakin realizing what he had just said looks down in guilt

"I'm sorry Master. I truly am, I'm... I'm just so frustrated"

"I maybe took you on too early but..."

Anakin senses a trouble in the force coming from Padme's room

"Do you sense that?"

"I sense it too"

The Jedi abandon their banter and proceed with their duty
